The Psychology of Color is the study of the reactions, emotions, moods and performance that are generated from certain colors. Color is so profound that it instantly drives our daily decisions within milliseconds. Navy blue is seen as trustworthy and reliable, true red as passionate and energetic, evening pink as compassionate and nurturing, daffodil yellow as active and youthful, burnt orange as friendly and cozy, dusty mauve as passive and quiet, and spa green as clean and reviving.”

Euthressa Ring has been offering color analysis for seven years. Color analysis is customized for the individual’s personality and the image they want to portray.

With fabric swatches, Euthressa drapes the client to determine temperature and intensity, and find colors that go best with his or her skin.

“I love how color lifts people,” she said. Color is the easiest thing to change about a person’s image.

“Color has a profound effect on how a person looks, feels, and how they are perceived by others. It can be used as a major persuading tool to alter the emotions and perceptions of those we encounter. Color also affects our apparent body/shape, age and energy level.”

Ring said, “Everyone can wear every color. Color analysis helps you learn what shade of that color works for you. The absolute best colors for you complement and harmonize with your natural coloring.”


The skin tone is the most important color on your palette, as all other colors are developed from this hue. This is the most versatile color and it gives the appearance of being open and vulnerable. For the woman it intensifies her femininity; for the man it magnifies his masculinity.

Wear your skin tone when you want to initiate a relationship, and build trust. It’s quite useful for family meetings, first dates and interacting with children.


Your hair color is a grounding color. Your eye color provides balance. These two colors help restore and balance our energy. We feel centered and have the power to negotiate with others. It is the most becoming color, meaning it "becomes" part of the person. This is the most passive color on the palette and takes less energy/effort to wear. It usually has a calming peaceful effect.

Wear your eye color when negotiating. Match your shoes and belts to your hair color. The texture of your hair can be mimicked in clothes. If you have curly hair, use more textured fabric. If you have straight hair, wear smooth fabrics.


Your fingertip color is your romantic color. This is perhaps the most flattering/engaging color in your palette. It has a pleasant effect and often feels, in its greater intensities, quite romantic in impression. This color is great for hot dates or celebrations.


This color is determined by the vein color on your wrist. It heightens the coloring. Dramatizes and accents the personality. It is the hardest working color in your palette because it coordinates all the other colors in your palette. Wear this color when you want to be most visible or show your power. A coat of the Dramatic Color is important in the wardrobe. It should be a dressy coat and can be worn over many clothes in the wardrobe. This should be considered an important color for eveningwear. Evening jewelry should be in precious or semi-precious stones of the Dramatic Color.
